From YouTube: Buncombe News Update - Gas Can Exchange


WNC Regional Air Quality Agency (WNCRAQA) and the Buncombe County Solid Waste Department hosted a FREE gas can exchange program at the Buncombe County Landfill at 85 Panther Branch Road in Alexander. The exchange coincided with the weekly Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day on Friday August 10th from 9am to 3pm, while supplies last. Citizens brought their old EMPTY gas cans (that are not equipped with new spill and vent-proof features) to the event and exchanged each one for a new, environmentally friendly, Briggs and Stratton gas can. The new cans were available in 2-gallon and 5-gallon sizes, and there was a limit of 5 new cans per person. This purpose of this project is to reduce air pollution emissions. The WNC Regional Air Quality Agency has entered into an agreement with a corporate donor to receive and exchange the lower emitting gas cans for the benefit of the citizens in our area.
